I think the opposite occurred. There was plenty of reason to believe the poster on PA was indeed a writer from ME3. Believing everything he said is another story of course.

I think he was referring to internal dissent about the writing team being precluded from working on the ending.

I'm pretty sure that was debunked, actually. The post that made such claims was simply fake.

Kajetan, nintendo has always marketed hard for global sales. Not sure where you are coming from on that one.

The market for $2 games on mobile platforms is already very wobbly. A few winners that make $$, but most dont sell much and quickly disappear off the radar. And spending $$ to market a 2$ game is a thorny problem with no answers.

In 2010-2011, I think many pubs and devs pinned their hopes on mobile gaming on phones, but it is not panning out.

The game industry is definitely struggling in the recession. Dedicated portable game consoles are floundering even in Japan. Home game consoles are turning into movie-streaming boxes.

PC games actually have a chance to regain some traction in all of this retail uneasiness.

PR blather:

Gibeau has to say this to the press because

1. Origin's arrival as EA's exclusive game client

2. dwindling global games sales for several years now.

no SD slot makes it a total no-go for me, but the specs are otherwise great for the price.

Already uninstalled. Watched the new ending on youtube. Done.

It will be interesting to see if that Casey guy gets another chance to head on a major game release after all of the kerfuffle.

for some reason I thought dawnguard was a free download -- oh well.

Happy to wait for the inevitable sale.

Dragon's Dogma is great -- though at level 35-ish it starts to get too easy. Excellent action RPG as long as you dont mind the wonky console framerate issues

2 of my friends -- who really liked D3 at launch -- are significantly annoyed that Blizzard is nerfing items, and worse, nerfing something or another every week. One is talking about not playing D3 anymore.

pricing is key

If it costs $1200 or up, the MS tablet is just another laptop with a keyboard and ports on the side.

I read the entire thread and what Torvald is asking for is open source for nvidia drivers. That's nvidia's RandD, and that asking for a lot.

I see both sides but nvidia is entirely within its rights to protect its stuff.

Mr DeMartini: you never say "never" to the press about anything. You'll eat those words.

Beamer I wish it were that simple; I've been using the "preview" and you'll get dumped into Metro at various points using the "classic desktop" and it is annoying.

And you cant put document shortcuts on metro, which will surely annoy many. App shortcuts yes. Docs no.

All you can really do is learn the new keyboard shortcuts since anything else will slow you down.

Town screens in VI finally?!

YMMV but I did not like this version of HOMM. "Simplified" is fine but now *all* of the troop types can be healed with ease. Changes battles into pointless heal fests. And you can create massive armies quickly so zerging works too well, especially with easy healing.

There's part of a great game buried in there somewhere.

Did someone in the thread actually suggest that Blizzard has the right to make a modest profit with the auction house? Yea modest -- for digital goods and then times the millions of digital items sold. Yea that's nothing but modest all over it.

Blizzard demands another cash cow and it shall have it!

Good thing D3 single-player is online so that it could prevent these things from happening. Mandatory online gaming is awesome.

I am gonna call it: Worst major release game of 2012
